We were at the 'Stories of Conflict, Migration and Place' event on Wednesday 4th May hosted by Community Arts North West and Platforma. We attended a very useful workshop on how to write scripts to make effective videos. We also saw a series of short videos in the morning that people had caught on their mobiles, showing different stories from the Syrian conflict.
We met with Stephen Hale, Chief Executive of Refugee Action, on 26 April to discuss integration and resettlement efforts for Syrian refugees. Building upon a previous meeting that we had with him, we discussed ways in which we can highlight some issues that Syrian refugees face, most particularly a lack of access to ESOL classes.
Thank you to members of the Manchester Jewish community for inviting us to speak about the work we do at their Seder service on Sat 16th April.
The story of Prophet Moses and the freedom of the Israelites from Pharoah is one of the significant stories mentioned in the Quran and one that all three faiths, (Islam, Christianity and Judaism), share.
